A Poetic Tragedy | Are You Human Too?

What a brilliant drama this was. Ending last night, Are You Human Too? may have had a rough start initially but somehow it did continue to deliver for the most part. How a science fiction ended up turning into a tale of filial loyalty is something I still don't understand completely. Nevertheless, I would say [...]

Chance Encounters and Childhood Traumas |What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim?

And it's a wrap! What a brilliant eight weeks of sheer fun in a workplace full of love lines and fuzzy romance! What's Wrong With Secretary Kim was one of the best romances ever. The actors in the show made it even better but nevertheless, the script stands as a solid work of art all [...]

Namgoong Min and Hwang Jung Eum | Hoon Nam Jung Eum

Another drama came to an end last night and much like many other Korean dramas, this was a fluffy romance drama for the most part. This made the content of the show very light and easy to digest. There was not much depth plot-wise, but this was made up by introduced ample cute moments that [...]

Grease Love and Woks Full of Melo | Greasy Melo

From the makers of Jealousy Incarnate, this was one heck of a unique show much like its predecessor and I enjoyed every minute of its quirky characters and the delicious food. With a star-studded cast, the show managed to pull off a very over-the-top plot with great ease. Despite wanting to write a longer introduction, [...]

Establishing New Codes of Justice | Miss Hammurabi

Exploring the social injustices of the downtrodden and destitute of Korean society, Miss Hammurabi was an emotional roller-coaster throughout the period it aired. Coming to an end last night, the story was at once heartwarming, motivating and also greatly nostalgic, leaving me wanting much more than was offered in terms of emotional satisfaction. However, everything [...]

Solving Crimes One Sketch At a Time | Sketch

By far Sketch was one of the best dramas that was airing these past few weeks. With a solid story line and a very well-knit plot, it kept me hooked every single episode wondering how crimes in the past, present and future would come together to narrate a single tale of revenge, redemption and betrayal. [...]

Let’s Eat

With Season 3 fast approaching, I decided to warm up and watch the first two seasons in time. Hence, after finishing Season 1, I am here with my review of a tantalizing journey of tastes and colours brought to us in the production of this masterpiece of a drama. Without further ado, I believe one [...]

Miracle That We Met

Oh the pleasure of watching another brilliant drama starring Kim Myung Min go down in the annals of his already amazing filmography. Miracle That We Met was partially absurd in its plot, in terms of the fantasy element present in it. However, it was definitely an amazing journey to be a part of, for numerous [...]

Pretty Noona Who Buys Me Good Food

This weekender just came to an end last weekend, and I was awaiting the final subtitled episode to write this review. Pretty Noona was an uncomfortable mixture of good and bad qualities, all intertwined, making it hard to distinguish on from the other. It was a pleasant watch, but the episodes often felt dragged, halfway through [...]

Switch: Change The World

And this marks the return of Jang Geun Suk to the small-screen. One of my first Korean actors, I have followed his career pretty closely. I did not watch his sageuk, Jackpot, however since I do not have a particular love for the historical drama. Therefore, Switch is what I watched after Pretty Man and I [...]
